Stop the Epipen Price Gouging

Messages Sent So Far
We ask that there be an investigation and regulation into the 420% (adjusted for inflation!) increase in the price of Epipens since 2004. Millions of people with severe allergies carry EpiPens to reverse life-threatening allergic reactions. With this oppressive price increase, many EMT's and families are turning to manual syringes as a cheaper alternative, though doctors and patient advocates warn that it?s more complicated to get the correct dose of epinephrine and it administer safely with a syringe. Some families will be forced to hang on to expired Epipens, or worse, go without entirely. There is no discernible reason for the increase other than Mylan's desire to use their monopoly to exploit the need for this life-saving medication for exorbitant profit. Thank you.

NOT JUST FOR Epipens!!! ALL MEDICAL/HOSPITAL/PHARMA price gouging!!! With the government now helping w/medical INSURANCE FOR ALL THAT NEED IT--KUDOS to our newly enlightened Government for the coverage!!!---I can't believe this price gouging cannot be a real concern for our Government as well. I would like to also add the same can be said of the Dental Care Industry of America. Millions & millions of Americans are denied dental care because of lack of monies &/or insurance. Lets have America take care of Americans. Americans taking care of Americans what a concept...not a new one, just good old common sense & good Christian morality. Or just plain decency.

My son is a young adult with a food allergy whose employer's health insurance plan doesn't cover enough of the cost of an Epipen to make it affordable for him to buy one. This is a lifesaving medication that should be easily accessible to those in need.

I am High school teacher and coach and my insurance does not cover epipens at all. My 4 year old daughter requires an epipen for fire ant bites which are a very considerable problem in Texas especially since we live close to water. If she has a reaction, she needs an epipen immediately. Epipens cost $700 plus for us and I already work fulltime plus 2 part time jobs. I have to pick up extra work in order to pay for more epipens when she needs them. Many of my students and players also require epipens. The pharmaceutical companies have put a tremendous financial burden on the lower and middle class families because of their price gouging. Something needs to be Done!

I just went to Walmart to buy my son's twin pack of EpiPen and it was almost $700 so this is still happening! I asked for the generic version because my BC/BS health insurance policy has a high prescription drug deductible. They re-wrote it and it was $313 (what it used to cost) - it the same box, same material so they are banking on people with insurance to send it through at brand name.

Stop all price gauging on pharmaceuticals. They should not be sold for more than 10 times what it costs to make them, or have extended periods as exclusive drugs due to minor changes if formula or use. Give Americans the same rights, as you give other countries, to buy in bulk, at reduced prices. Why should we shoulder the entire cost of research?

The epi pen belongs to the American people. It was voted in by Americans to be used and paid for with our tax dollars to administer. Keep it is America and keep it available and with a low cost. Stop ripping off the American tax payer! We have had enough!!
